Working great, as expected so far! But I've installed it 20 minutes ago lol - I was using NoRoot Firewall, which does the same thing, except there I got a notification every single time an app wanted access, so imagine literally thousands of notifications... Not with NetGuard though! Thank you :) - I've put NetGuard in my list of optimization exceptions, so far it hasn't closed, which was an issue with other apps (not the app's fault), but so far so good! I'll be purchasing pro features soon.

Using this for months with great success. After installing a new game, before running it, I turn off web and cell access for it. No ads on the free games! Some might pause on startup while they desperately try to find ads to spam you, but will eventually give up and let you play ad free. A very few won't let you play, but very few. And any that use web servers for daily contests and the like will need access. If I love the game I'll let ads in, but if they ruin the game I turn off access again.

Really awesome. Yes there is a small learning curve, but not that big, more of an understanding curve. Yes it can take time to get things properly configured. Yes it's worth your time. I combined this with Bouncer to manage permissions. Disabled mobile background data on some apps. With these together you can save on your data and stop certain apps from spying, to some extent. If you're really looking at locking down, you'd really need to root, but since some can't do that for whichever reasons, this and Bouncer are your best options.
